In Search of... Info
Trivia questions, who wrote that song, when was the last time the Dead played Deer Creek, etc.
Des Moines and Louisville both have mix problems at the start of the show. Perhaps a good audience recording will have Bertha for 6/16 and Jet on 6/18. Who was running the board back then: Owsley, Healey, Cantor, Kid? Remember, the Wall of Sound was up and certainly demanded a lot of tech attention.
I attended and have a copy of this concert from the archives sound board but the first tune, Bertha, only has half the instruments and no vocals. Does anyone have a clean copy of Bertha, the first tune??? If so, you can contact me at:
Does anyone have or make tour rout maps? Of which shows they went to, when and where? Or does there exist a map of the GD's tours? By year?
I'm trying to piece together some of the shows I've been to. Anyone know the dates when Led Zepplin was playing Winterland and the Dead were playing the old Fillmore? How about the date for the Winterland show that Wavy Gravy announced from stage that refreshments were being passed around "take a sip and pass it on." I don't think a lot of people heard the "sip" part :-O!!!! Seems to me Mr. Gravy may have been in a bodycast, but then my vision was fluctuating somewhat. That show might have been the Indians on Alcatraz Benefit. Any help appreciated!
I have had cause to wonder from time to time which song Bobby flubbed the lyrics on the most times. From a very uninformed position I'd take a guess at Truckin'. I'll bet someone out there knows which song and how many times.
bt.etree.org and www.archive.org both have the Las Vegas show. It is not in the Vindex, surprisingly, here on dead.net.
Deep Elem was performed electrically after the October 1980 acoustic runs from San Francisco to New York. The 2 nights in New Orleans did not have a Deep Elem!! Check Lakeland FL from 11/28/80 sounds great. GD archivist David LeMieux just featured parts of the Glen Falls 4-14-82 show: Deep Elem is played here too. Use deadlists.com to search for the show, or the song, of your choice.
New Speedway Boogie indeed was brought back in 1991!! 2/19/91, at first, with several more dates to follow, including Deer Creek and the Palace. I heard one in Salt Lake in 1995.
William Letizia The Dead played 14 shows in Vegas from 1991-1995. Where can I obtain copies of these shows, especially the May 30th, 1992 show? Any information would be appreicated. I am new to this site. Thank you.
cosmicbadger, you are my hero! This is just what I was looking for, thank you so much!
J.T. I appreciate the info. Thank you!
Rhunter08: yes, excellent live versions of New Speedway Boogie from the early 90's. Years tend to blend together but I want to say '91 is when they broke it out. Deer Creek if my memory serves me correctly (not when they broke it out- when I saw it). i saw it on the west coast too that fall, I'm pretty sure. But yes, NSB was played electric, usually into Drums.
I find setlists.net the easiest to use.
